Tutoring Jobs
Courses seem to be the bane of
existence of many a student on
campus, and for this reason, great
is the number who -frequent the
Merit-Tutorial Office of the Lea-
gue seeking rescue from the sud-
den onrush of finals.
Originating as a League service
in 1939, the office was first opened
for the aid of freshmen women
who seemed to have trouble ori-
enting themselves to the new
world of books in which they found
themselves suddenly submerged.
IN THE PAST years, the ser-
vice has been expanded to include
both men and women students,
from freshmen to seniors.
Pat Lewis, chairman of the
committee, has issued an invita-
tion for all students to sign up
in the committee office both for
tutors and for work as the same.
Tutors are needed for all sub-
jects, particularly courses in busi-
ness administration. If the subject
is the tutor's major, a "B" aver-
age is required, otherwise a grade
of "A" is necessary. Those signing
up for work as tutors must present
their eligibility card.
THOSE WISHING to obtain the
services of a tutor, are required to
have no further requirements,
other than the desire for aid in
a subject.

Fur Suits
Something new in the use of
fur is demonstrated in suits and
skirts made of white and ebony

Tutoring service is discontin-
ued two weeks before the end of
each semester due to the diffi-
culty of teaching a whole course
in a limited amount of time.
The office is open from 1 to 5
p.m. every day from Monday to
Friday, and those wishing work as
a tutor or the services of the same,
